Driver assist systemsBack to overview
Numerous assist systems in the new Audi RS Q3** and the new Audi RS Q3 Sportback** increase the levels of safety and comfort both on long journeys and in urban traffic. In Germany, a number of systems are included as standard, while many others are available as an option or as a package.
Safety included: the standard systems
The RS Q3** and RS Q3 Sportback** are equipped with numerous systems as standard. Audi pre sense front provides assistance in the event of danger of collision. The system detects critical situations in front of the car by means of front radar and also registers pedestrians and cyclists in addition to vehicles. It gives the driver a visual, acoustic, and haptic warning and initiates emergency braking in the event of an emergency. This is also when the preventive protection measures of Audi pre sense front come into play. As soon as the vehicle sensors detect an unstable driving condition, the system electrically tightens the front seat belts, closes the windows and the optional sliding roof, and activates the hazard warning lights to warn the cars driving behind. This happens, for example, if the electronic stabilization control (ESC) sensors detect skidding or hard braking.
If the driver has not turned on a turn signal and the car is about to cross a lane marking detected by the front camera, the lane departure warning assists with steering corrections. The lane change warning, which uses two radar sensors directed toward the rear, is also on board in Germany. If the system detects a vehicle located in the blind spot or approaching quickly from the rear, a warning LED is lit in the relevant exterior mirror.
Parking system plus, which also comes standard with the RS Q3** and the RS Q3 Sportback**, assists the driver by outputting acoustic signals and displays in the MMI touch display during parking and maneuvering.
Optional systems: individual or as a package
Adaptive cruise assist is a highlight among the optional systems. It combines the functions of adaptive cruise control, traffic jam assist, and active lane assist, including control to the middle of the lane, and is active up to a speed of 200 km/h (124.3 mph). It assists the driver with longitudinal and lateral guidance, thereby increasing the level of comfort substantially on long journeys in particular. The system is part of the assist package that also includes high-beam assist and emergency assist. The latter detects within system limits whether the driver is inactive and accordingly provides visual, acoustic, and haptic warnings. If this does not prompt a reaction, the system takes control of the car and automatically stops it in its own lane. The hazard warning lights are also activated in this case.
